        Very lovely, Eirik. My favourites: in #234 no.6 with its strikingly dominant curved rail and the light playing over the whole pic., no.8 with its excellent composition, and in #237 the first two. That sunset is hauntingly beautiful, almost a monochrome.

          This is what I came out of my front door to this morning, I could have stood there for an eternity just looking at mother nature doing this.

            I don't know why I didn't comment on your Rotterdam photos above, Thijs, must have done the reply to Eirik and then dashed off somewhere. But now that Paul has put up his sunrise, what a similarity there is in the sky colouring of all 3 pics. In the R'dam ones the cranes fit perfectly into the band of brilliant flame colour, while in Paul's scene that sky is almost menacing, isn't it?

                Actually, I quite like these photos of yours Thijs. You really get the feel of a harbour and city waking up from it's sleep to a brand new day, the key for me is not so much the quality but capturing of the moment. And I love the shaft of light shining breaking through the darkness on the water. Very nice!

                Oh Ivy! It was a magnificent sunrise yesterday, I took some from where I keep my horses too. The silhouette of the trees against the sky was so nice, Mother nature is so fantastic to see on any given day!

                      does this make any sens ivy?

                      this is what the translationsite came with.

                        "Aldo income learns" makes no sense, Thijs.
                        "Aldo" does not exist in English. In my Dutch dictionary it gives the Dutch word "aldoor" = English "continuously", so that could probably also mean keeping on and on at something.
                        "income" in English practically always means money coming in.
                        learns is OK, like Dutch "leren".

                        I put Dutch "aldo" in WordMonkey and it comes up with the same in English, which is rubbish. Then I put English "Practice makes perfect" and it gave Dutch "de praktijk maakt perfect", which is what you meant.
                        Translation is a minefield, isn't it! Maar is je Engels zeer goed nu. (had to look up word order in my Teach Yourself Dutch book!)

                          Sunset in Singapore a few days ago:






                          Since we are close to equator, the time difference between these pictures is fairly short.

                            A lovely progression of colour in the sky each time, Ombugge.

                              I'll add some seen from the Adventure of the Seas.... Sadly there will only be sunrises, as the sun had a nasty habit of setting while we were dining...

                              Just before sunrise, sailing into Cagliari Corsica. I Used a long exposure (13 seconds) and a tripod here...



                              A shot of the sunrise from the balcony...



                              Just before sunrise in Ajaccio, Corsica...



                              The view of the sunrise, from the top deck (St. Tropez) up front



                              Then, finally the harbor area bathed in a strong yellow early morning light
